Many actors and actresses who were discovered were often models before making the change to acting. This comes from heavy exposure modeling agencies provide through comp cards and portfolios.
And to make this more convenient, an East Coast model and acting agency has partnered with a major record label. A modeling and talent agency, Zobe, and independent record label, New Nation Entertainment, is hard at work to make sure they assist in this transformation. January 2011 marked the beginning of a journey for two entertainment businesses as they joined forces to become a one-stop-shop for the fashion, modeling, music, entertainment, and media industry in the DMV (DC, Maryland and Virginia)
A lot has been accomplished between these two companies within the past year and now going into January of 2012 these two businesses are preparing for more growth and expansion.
